MM26 Transparent Gesso has been specifically formulated to mix with Matisse Background Colours to provide a coloured primer for holding paint and pastels, including oil pastels. This acrylic medium is similar to Matisse MM10 Gesso and MM25 Black Gesso, only without pigmentation. It is a transparent (although not altogether clear) flexible primer, which provides an excellent tooth for easy manipulation on canvas, board and even paper. On canvas, it will tighten the canvas. This provides a firmer surface for painting with acrylics or oils while allowing the colour and texture of the underlying surface to remain visible.
